“Clean, Quiet and Modern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

We made the booking the day before we arrived via phone and were happy with our decision as we were on the road travelling when the booking was made and had never been to whitianga before, the apartment was nice and clean and mordern, the kitchen was equipped with a stove top and microwave, all cups etc were matching and the staff were very friendly and chatty. i would definitly recommend staying here - we will be back to whitianga, its such a lovely town with seaviews from the balcony of the apartment aswell was a nice stay.

Room Tip: Would recommend a balcony apartment as has spa baths

We stayed at Beachside Resort for 2 nights. Great location and price compared to others. Units appear almost new and have good quality fittings etc. Only downside is that there is no air conditioning or ceiling fans and it was quite warm for both of our nights.

Stay here as it is just down the road from town. 5m walk. Restaurants and bars. Rooms are great just like a motel. Great pool and free tennis rackets from reception. Another motel in the resort so a bit confusing when you arrive. Private gate to the famous Lost Spring at the back of the resort.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

Stayed 3 nights with family 2 adults and 2 kids 13 and 15. Made great use of the tennis court, and pool. Resort is in a central location in Whittianga. Whittianga is a great place to stay on Coromandel for its eateries, beauty, park, water activities and central location to visit Hot Water Beach and the Cathedral Cove walk. Had an excellent time here. Was a bit dissappointed not to get a room upstairs where there is views of the bay. They don't tend to put the families up there.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have a view of Mercury Bay.

Found the Beachside Resort Whitianga to be not quite what was expected. . .The kitchen offered cutlery and plates, however they had not been washed properly from the last occupants and therefore needed to be washed again before we could eat off them. . .Overall, the unit wasn't the cleanest. Sheets were also quite rough and uncomfortable. The heated towel rail wasn't working. No air con or fan. Also, we had the misfortune to experience a party bus full of hens party-goers arrive on one of the nights we were staying. This made for a difficult sleep as they stayed up until early morning with their very LOUD 'festivities'. However, the pool was nice and the grounds well kept. It was okay, but feel it was quite expensive for what it was.

Nice place, in a prime spot. Right across the road from the water front & a street along from the shops in the town centre. Nice receptionist. However there were ant's in our apartment, no air conditioning at all & no fans. Also SKY TV stopped working.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

Nice place, although "beachside" is not really accurate because it is one row back, but with our partial ocean view we could see a little of the sea. We were literally just passing through, so were happy with the motel. Receptionist very nice. Thought it was a bit pricey as everywhere was so quiet, but I did manage to get free wi-fi worth $5! However, this only lasted for 5 minutes! We were advised to visit the "lost spring" which was eerie to say the least. Did not know what it was, but after getting through a gap in the fence and passing a rabbit (yes, a live rabbit grazing) we eventually came to the building which was in fact a spa, but it was closed. The sheets and towels were exceptionally good at this motel and the inside was very, very clean. I did have to clean the table and chairs on the balcony though which looked as if they had not been cleaned since the summer before.
